Just In: CSK is in talks with Suresh Raina as a replacement for Deepak Chahar: Reports

Deepak Chahar will be out for 4 months because of a back injury he sustained, recovering at the NCA. He is likely to miss the T20 WC 2022.

Mr. IPL Suresh Raina went unsold this IPL Mega Auction 2022. Shockingly even CSK didn’t show an intent to include him in their squad. His stature in the game can be understood that even when he has already been named as a part of the commentary panel, there are still talks about him returning to the game. In addition, Raina’s illustrious IPL career makes the talks even more prevalent. It is to be noted that Raina was the leading run-scorer in the IPL for a very long time. Raina was named on the Star sports’ Hindi commentary panel for IPL 2022. However, now that Deepak Chahar has been ruled out of the IPL 2022 because of a back injury. Reports state that CSK is in talks with Suresh Raina as a replacement. It will be interesting to see Raina make a comeback if the rumors are true.

He has been an integral part of the CSK team throughout his career. In addition, he is the leading run-scorer for CSK. Playing 205 matches he smashed 5528 runs at a strike rate of 136.73. In addition, Raina’s highest score in IPL is 100*. His contribution to the national side has been immense. Moreover, he was the first Indian to smash centuries in all formats of the game.

Deepak Chahar sustained a quadriceps tear in the home T20 series against West Indies. Subsequently, he was ruled out and was recovering at the NCA. He was expected to return to the CSK camp after the first half of the games. However, while rehabilitating he injured his back. As a result, Deepak has been ruled out of the remainder of the IPL 2022. CSK received a big blow as they bought Deepak for their highest bid ever of INR 14 crores. Ever since it has been made official that Chahar is not available, there are rumors that CSK will approach Suresh Raina to come in as a replacement. Moreover, Raina has been missing from the commentary panel for more than a week now. This points to a possibility of Raina returning to the IPL.

CSK has won only 1 of their first 6 matches. If Raina actually makes his IPL comeback, it might turn the tables for CSK.
